This is an auction for SZABAD, by Alan Duff.

From the back cover:

"A gripping novel set in 1950s Hungary about a fight for freedom and a fight for love. 'She screams one word: Szabad! Free. Again: Szabad!' It is the 1950s. The Soviets and the Secret Police have a choking grip on Hungary and the lives of its citizens. Attila Szabo is one of them, just a teenager, but he's been forced to grow up quickly, with his father in prison. In the top-floor flat, a new couple has just moved in, clearly different in class, so why have they been sent here and can they be trusted? But it's the beautiful wife who is of interest to Attila. His coming fight for his country's freedom is also to become one of passion."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Alan Duff, MBE (born 26 October 1950), is a New Zealand novelist and newspaper columnist. He is most well known as the author of the novel Once Were Warriors (1990), which was made into a film of the same name in 1994. The Duffy Books in Homes scheme, co-founded in 1995 by Duff and Christine Fernyhough, with commercial sponsorship and government support, aims to alleviate poverty and illiteracy by providing low-cost books to underprivileged children, thus encouraging them to read. In its first year alone it put about 180,000 new books in the hands of about 38,000 children. By 2008, the scheme delivered 5 million books to schools around New Zealand.
